The World Cup is only two days away which means there isn’t much time left to learn the Diski Dance…
Whether you are heading to South Africa or watching the World Cup at home you are sure to see a lot of dancing, vuvuzelas (Google it) and singing. And we thought it would be a good idea to prepare you in advance so you can dance along – Cusqueña in hand of course.
The Diski Dance was created especially for the 2010 World Cup and was inspired by the rhythm and unique football style of South Africans. The Diski is made up of five basic dance moves: the Juggle or Teka, the Header, the Table Mountain, the Trepa and lastly, the Bridge.
The Juggle or Teka involves passing an imaginary football from one foot to the other – creating an interesting hopping movement. Next, the Header does exactly what the name implies – pretend you are bouncing the ball on your head.
The Table Mountain sees you bend over to balance the imaginary ball on the back of your neck while walking backwards. We assume it is named as such as you are meant to make your back as flat as Table Mountain – but we’re just guessing. Next is the Trepa which is all about lifting the ball from the back of your neck, over your head and back onto your feet. Luckily the ball is imaginary, so it is easier than it sounds! You end things off with the Bridge where you pass the ball from one foot, over the other, catching it on the other side.
Make sense? Probably not, so we suggest you watch the video instead!
